Congresswoman
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
I’m so proud to endorse Alessandra Biaggi for Congress in New York’s 17th district. As a State Senator, Alessandra arrived in Albany to a government plagued by gridlock. Through hard work, Alessandra was able to break through and deliver a series of progressive wins for New York State. Now, she’s ready to take her leadership to Congress where I know she’ll continue fighting for working people. We can count on her to stand with our movement on critical issues such as abortion rights, championing the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, and fighting to raise the minimum wage. We have an incredible opportunity to continue building progressive power by electing Alessandra.

Cynthia Nixon
The voters of NY-17 have a clear choice – an establishment politician and D.C. insider who is part of why Washington is broken, or Alessandra Biaggi, a fierce fighter who changed Albany and delivered on critical issues that had been held up for years, including protecting abortion rights, expanding voting rights, addressing climate change, and more. The issues we face are much too important to keep a representative who puts his corporate donors and special interests first. Let's send Alessandra Biaggi to Washington to fight for us.

Working Families Party
We’re proud to endorse Alessandra Biaggi in the 17th Congressional District. Since taking down the head of the Republican-aligned IDC, Alessandra has been a fierce fighter for working families and someone who is never afraid to stand up for what's right. As a State Senator, she championed affordable housing, reforming our broken ethics system, and justice for sexual assault survivors. Alessandra would be a tremendous addition to New York’s Congressional delegation.

PCCC
Progressive Change Campaign Committee
As DCCC Chair, Sean Patrick Maloney’s only job is to protect a Democratic majority. His selfish decision to abandon his old district and potentially hand it to a pro-Trump Republican is political malpractice and is like a cowardly general abandoning troops on the battlefield. In contrast, Alessandra Biaggi is a bold progressive fighter for working families who has run into tough fights and won. Maloney owes it to House Democrats to either focus on running the DCCC or focus on running in this competitive open-seat primary, but he can’t do both well and the stakes are too high in 2022. Maloney is not the incumbent in this district, and we believe Alessandra Biaggi is the most likely candidate to hold this open seat for Democrats.

DFA
Democracy for America
DFA is proud to endorse Alessandra Biaggi, who will be a progressive champion for working people in Washington. We know Alessandra will fight for and deliver real change — from tackling climate change and ending gun violence, to making housing, healthcare and prescription drugs affordable, to protecting the right to choose and the right to vote. For too long, the rich and powerful have controlled what happens in Congress -- that's why we need someone with conviction and a record of legislative accomplishment. Alessandra Biaggi has both and Democracy for America will have her back now and in November.

As a NewYork State Senator she has proven to be a bold and fierce leader who is unafraid to take on the status quo to champion progressive legislation. We are confident she will bring that same fight and determination to Congress where she will put people first - not corporations.

NYPAN
NY Progressive Action Network
NYPAN was one of the earliest and strongest supporters of Senator’s Biaggi’s historic 2018 upset of Jeff Klein, an ambitious corporate Democrat with unlimited funds, whom many experts said could not be beat. Despite being heavily outspent, voters knew she was the real Democrat in the race and she won handily. After an impressive two terms of helping her constituents, she is now courageously taking on another corporate Dem with unlimited funds, and NYPAN is proud to again stand with her.

Downtown Women for Change
We are thrilled to endorse Senator Alessandra Biaggi for Congress in NY-17. Since unseating the head of the IDC in 2018, Alessandra has been unwavering in her commitment to protecting abortion rights, tackling the climate crisis, and ensuring good governance. It has been an honor to work alongside her for the last four years advancing women's rights, and we look forward to continuing our partnership in Congress.

Empire State Indivisible
Alessandra Biaggi has been a fierce champion for working people since day one — and we’re proud to endorse her for Congress in NY-17. As a progressive leader, advocate, and State Senator, Alessandra helped flip the State Senate blue, push through the Albany gridlock, and finally deliver for New Yorkers. Empire State Indivisible was proud to work alongside Biaggi when she ran her first campaign and successfully unseated a corrupt, corporate politician in Albany. Since then, she has delivered time and time again: helping codify Roe, protect tenants rights, tackle climate change and pass gun safety legislation. Now, we’re thrilled Alessandra is once again standing up to a corrupt, corporate politician in DC — and we can’t wait to join her on the campaign trail and send her to Congress.

Sunrise NYC
“We’re proud to endorse Alessandra Biaggi for the U.S. Congress for the open seat in the newly-redrawn NY-17 because she is the type of bold Democrat we need in power,” said Tyler Hack and Alex Graves, Political Endorsements Leads for Sunrise NYC. “We’ve backed Alessandra every time she’s run for public office because she’s taken on the toughest of fights. In 2018, fresh off our first-ever electoral campaign — electing now-Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — we backed Alessandra’s campaign to defeat the head of a corrupt group of corporate Democrats, who she defeated despite being outspent 10-to-1. Hacks and Graves continued, “As a state Senator, she has closely supported our initiatives in Albany and passed her own climate legislation to reduce air pollutants, demonstrating a unique ability to work across political factions to deliver results for New Yorkers without straying from her progressive priorities. Meanwhile, Alessandra’s congressional opponent failed to act in opposition to the Danskammer power plant and is not a cosponsor of critical climate legislation, such as the Green New Deal for Public Housing and the Green New Deal Public Schools. This race is about the fight about what kind of Democratic Party we want our future to look like: Alessandra represents the Democratic Party we want to grow up in."
